The application enables real-time information sharing during site surveys which improves efficiency and eliminates the need to transcribe survey data. The USACE develops common operating pictures for commanders using information from the application as well as local, state and federal agencies and non-governmental organizations. Crockett and Rothberger came to Maui from the Fort Worth District, USACE to support the emergency response to the Aug. 8 wildfires on Maui. The Debris Planning and Response Team is working with partners to evaluate courses of action related to private property debris removal operations and community engagement planning.
